Quiznos' franchisee QSR International (QSR) opened its Quito, Ecuador, location, earlier this month, making QSR the first international Quiznos franchise group to license and open 100-plus restaurants.
The company commemorated the event by inducting Richard Eisenberg, QSR International president, into the Quiznos International 100 Club.
"An accomplishment like this doesn't happen overnight. QSR International and the Quiznos brand have flourished under Richard's direction for almost 15 years," said Stuart Mathis, CEO for Quiznos. "Richard represents the franchise model we want to attract and nurture. He serves as an example to the entire franchise system that hard work, dedication and a solid partnership will help everyone realize their goals of continued growth and success."
